Benefits lost have not been restored
Manager II Engineering (Current Employee) – Dulles, VA – December 21, 2016
The recession a few years ago got everyone nervous about keeping their jobs and companies, to include Raytheon, understandably sought to cut costs. Many benefits were reduced and the cost to the employee, particularly for health care, went up. Now that the economy and company are well-off, the benefits we lost have not been restored. It's the new norm, and I'm certain this isn't unique to Raytheon, but nontheless, a company that wants to retain it's talent should pass along the prosperity as quickly as it makes cuts when times are tough.
